Padma Bridge a symbol of national pride, dignity: Joy
Prime Minister's ICT Affairs Adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy has said Padma Bridge is a symbol of pride and dignity of Bangladesh.
"Padma Bridge is not just an engineering masterpiece but a symbol of pride and dignity of Bangladesh as well. People of this country equally share this glory," he said last night (June 24, 2022), sharing a video from his verified Facebook profile.
Joy said the future of Bangladesh hinges on this bridge.
This bridge has connected around one-third of Bangladesh's land area, entangled with rivers, to the capital, he said.
Consequently, Joy said, it will catalyse the local and international trade of Bangladesh.
In addition to transforming the economic footing of around 50 million people of the south-west part of the country, Joy said, it will also ensure a rise in the national income, meaning GDP, by at least 1.5 percent, a paradigm shift for the entire Bangladesh.
"Padma Bridge with our money, Padma Bridge for Bangladesh," he added.
